Mass of 190kg

Coefficient of static friction is 0.4

Coefficient of kinetic friction 0.36

Horizontal force = 500N

Taking g=9.81m/s^2.

The weight of the body my

W=190*9.81=1863.91N

There is a normal acting on the body which is equal to the weight

N=W=1863.91N

Frictional force (fr) is acting on the body and it is opposite the horizontal force.

The minimum force to be overcome before the object can start to move is Fr = μsN

Fr = μsN. μs=0.4

Fr = 0.4*1863.91

Fr=745.56N.

Since the horizontal force (500N) is not up to the minimum force to make the object move, then the force of 500N the body is still at rest.

Then the frictional force at that time is equal to the horizontal force

Therefore

Functional force = 500N

b. Mass of asteroid is

M=2000kg

Asteroid velocity at a particular instant is,

U = (-1.30x10^4, 4.20x10^4, 0) m/s

Magnitude of U is

U=√ (-1.30*10^4) ^2 + (4.2*10^4) ^2+0

U=√1.933E9

U=4.39*10^4m/s

Position of the asteroid from the centre of the earth is,

R = (6.00x10^6, 10.00x10^6, 0) m.

The magnitude of the radius is

R = √ (6.00x10^6) ^2 + (10.00x10^6) ^2 + 0^2

R=√3.6E13+10E13+0

R=√13.6E13

R=1.17E7m

R^2=13.6E13m

The mass of the earth is

Me=5.97x10^24 kg

The momentum of the asteroid after time, t=1.5*10^3s

Given that G=6.67x10^-11Nm^2/kg^2

Momentum is

Mv-Mu=Ft

There the new momentum will be

Mv=Ft+Mu

Now we the to find the force the earth exert on the asteroid by using

F=GMMe/R^2

F=6.67E-11 * 2000 * 5.97E24 / 13.6E13

F=7.964E17/13.6E13

F=5855.88N

The new momentum

Mv = Mu+Ft

Mv = 2000 (4.39E4) + 5855.88 (1.5E3)

Mv=9.66E7kgm/s

The new momentum is 9.66*10^7 Kgm/s
